Beauty News: NEUTROGENA: We Welcome Nicole Kidman as our Global Brand Ambassador

Hollywood luminary Nicole Kidman is NEUTROGENA ® Global Brand Ambassador

17 March 2017, Petaling Jaya – Worldwide premium skincare brand NEUTROGENA® has recently announced Academy Award-winning actress, activist for women’s cancer research and Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, Nicole Kidman as its latest Global Brand Ambassador.

According to Cory Price, General Manager of NEUTROGENA® at Johnson & Johnson US, “Nicole embodies the true spirit of the women that we are committed to everyday. Their passion, strength and focus are what makes NEUTROGENA® women so special. Nicole will help us encourage women to embrace their beauty through the lens of skin health and empower women to see what’s possible with NEUTROGENA®”.

In Malaysia, NEUTROGENA® is known for its wide array of skin health-focused products starting from cleansers, hydration serum and masks to sun protection lotions.

“We are pleased that a Hollywood big name like Nicole Kidman has become our global brand ambassador. Besides keeping the NEUTROGENA® brand top of mind when it comes to beauty, Nicole will serve as an aspiration for our local consumers who appreciate healthy and beautiful skin,” said Raghu Krishnan, Country Director, Consumer, Johnson & Johnson Malaysia.

Nicole Kidman, Australian actress and NEUTROGENA® Ambassador, comments: “The world works in mysterious ways! As you probably know, I grew up in Australia where sun protection is everything – from the time I was a little girl, my mum taught me to protect my skin from the sun. So looking after the health of my skin is something I’ve grown up understanding. But as times passes, I’ve realised that, sun protection has become just part of the story…I’ve learned that your skin needs a lot of attention and support, just like the rest of your body in order to keep it its healthiest.”

“So when I had the opportunity to partner with NEUTROGENA®, a brand that has skin health at the core of who they are, it was like the stars were aligning for me.”

“Right now I can honestly say I am loving life more than ever, so my overall health, including the health of my skin is a top priority. Look, the reality is, we all know choosing the right anti-ageing product is trial and error, hit or miss, some things work and some don’t. But at this point in my life I am looking for something that simply works, that’s why I am really excited to join this passionate and dedicated team. I am also extremely proud to be joining a strong and inspiring group of NEUTROGENA® women who are already a part of the family.”

In January of 2006, Kidman was named, and continues to serve, as Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, whose goals are to foster women’s empowerment and gender equality, to raise awareness of the infringement on women’s human rights around the world and to end violence against women.

She is also an activist in supporting research of women’s cancer. Along with her husband, Keith Urban, she helped raise nearly half a million dollars for the Women’s Cancer Program, a world-renowned centre for research into the causes, treatment, prevention, and eventual cure of women’s cancer.

Presently, Kidman can be seen on the big screen in The Weinstein Company’s Lion for which she has received Critics’ Choice, Golden Globe, SAG Awards and Academy Award nominations. She will next be seen in the upcoming films How to Talk to Girls at Parties and The Beguiled and The Killing of a Sacred Deer. On the small screen, Kidman returns to television this month in the limited series Big Little Lies for HBO as well as the second season of Top of The Lake (SundanceTV/BBC Two).

Kidman joins NEUTROGENA® Brand Ambassadors Rachael Taylor, Jennifer Garner, Kerry Washington, Julie Bowen, Kristen Bell, Eiza Gonzalez, Sandra Echeverria, Hayden Panettiere and Olivia Holt.

Random Photos

It's been a great month so far; emotionally, physically and financially.

I did two races so far in March, plus a hike.
The #IWillBeOkay Bukit Kiara Hike organised by Fiona, of

And a half-marathon at Bukit Jalil the next day. I finished with a 2:31 timing and although it's not a PB, I was happy with my run nonetheless.

Powerman the week before was fun too. 
I even managed to fit in a session running to Bukit Cinta after work and bumped into a few GC running kaki.

Had some nice makan too, apart from the celebration of a good run; I received an outstanding payment of some jobs I had done. Finally, phew.

And two more payments which came really fast! I really do appreciate companies that respect people's work and not give lame excuses for holding payment.
Carl's Jr was a treat.

Cannot eat here too often. Premium burgers, wei! Haha
A nice makan at a place near our house too.

Simple, affordable but lovely because it's with the family. ^^

We have about two weeks left for March and then it's April!

April and May will be two busy months, in terms of running.

I have a few races to do and a couple where I'll be helping out instead of running.

And oh! We're taking a day off first Monday of April to attend Son's Hari Anugerah Kecemerlangan! ^^

Hamburgers & Chicken

I always make a point to splurge and enjoy good food after a good run. I wanted to celebrate my run at  Bukit Jalil Half Marathon as I was pretty happy with it despite it not being my personal best (PB).

Our initial plan was to head to Miyagi (as usual lah...) but the restaurant was fully booked the night that we went there. We decided to drive around and finally decided to have dinner at Wadihana Kitchen Steak House.
Hubby and I the Combo Sizzling and we chose to have beef & lamb patties (can choose chicken or beef or lamb) at RM19.90.
Son had the Nasi Goreng USA at RM14.90.
Portion was generous and price is affordable. But service at Wadihana is not what you call the most efficient there is lah...

We were already half way through our meal and our drinks have yet made its appearance!

Anyhoo, for 3 meals plus drinks (bandung cincau selasih, teh halia and sirap ais), the total was RM69.20.

Not bad lah.

Perhaps next time I'll try their salmon dish. ^^

The next day, I received a good news about a part-time job I applied with a Japan-based company and I got a 6-months contract with them (that reminds me, I must submit my details and consent forms ASAP!) so another makan to celebrate is in order lah...

Nowhere fancy, we just went to Nando's. 
Nando's is currently having this Mango & Lime Full Platter promotion (RM59.90) and we decided to have that.
Our two sides of choice that came with the Full Platter combo.

The sweet potato chips is soooooo sedap, I tell you.

It was nice to have something (or plenty of excuses) to celebrate and enjoy a nice makan session with the family, right?
